This is going to be a speedy little post because I’ve got about 20 minutes before I have to get ready for work. But I know that I haven’t blogged in what feels like a REALLY long time, so I just wanted to wave to my lovely followers and ask for your patience with my slowslowslow pace with which I’m getting through my current reads. I’ve got two things on the go at the moment – Children of England by Alison Weir, which is non-fiction on Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Mary I and Elizabeth I; and Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt, which is the next book in my Radio 4 Bookclub Challenge. I only started the Weir book because Waterstones didn’t have Angela’s Ashes when I tried to buy it so I was waiting for it to arrive, but now I’m invested in it. There’s also a lot of other reading going on in my life at the moment – last week I finished writing an essay on the impact of slavery on Africa, my current essay is on the historiography of and the primary sources important in the study of settlement law and removal in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, and I’m revising for two exams which are at the end of May. So that adds up to A LOT of reading. I’m powering through though, and hopefully will have a review for you within the next week or so. Going for a pre-work cup of tea now – have a nice evening everyone!
